Rates shock

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

HAVE re­ceived the lat­est rates no­tice, and am still in shock, I won­der how many res­i­dents felt the same I did. As I am on an aged pen­sion, hav­ing a whop­ping $400 ex­tra to pay on top of the pre­vi­ous bill has hit very hard and I feel for those who have also been dealt with a sub­stan­tial rise.

Ap­par­ently we un­lucky ratepay­ers are pay­ing for Coun­cil’s mis­takes, and we will have to wait and see what our fu­ture rates will be. In the mean­time we will be forced to cut back on other things in or­der to cope with the cost of liv­ing. Thanks for noth­ing Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil. M Jon­dahl CON­WAY
